Percy Jackson & the Olympians #1: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson & the Olympians #1: The Lightning Thief

Review of The Lightning Thief

"Say hello to the son of Poseidon." Amazing is it not. Imagine yourself having AMAZING powers and not knowing them until you are thirteen. Not only this, but you have also been kicked out of 6 schools, each for every year. This is what it is like to be Percy Jackson. Percy Jackson is the son of Poseidon and is being accused of stealing The Master Lightning Bolt belonging to Zeus. The only problem with this accusation is that Percy has never known he was a demigod, (this means that one is a half god and half human,) and now he has to find it before the Summer Solstice or Zeus and Poseidon will get into a war making the Trojan one look like to babies fighting of food. I would recommend this to anyone from the ages of 8 to 16. This is a great book and you should be warned that once you pick up this book it will cause you endless of nights of reading.

Found by Margaret Pet Haddix

eddie.escobar117, June 8, 2010

"I wonder if thee are good turkey legs in 1805?" Found is written by Margret Peterson Haddix. This book is terribly exciting when the main characters are taken and outside of time. A fight broke out in the cave and everyone was scared. When I was reading this I felt tension along with excitement and fear because a powerful and dangerous weapon is shot into the ceiling. The gun was described as shooting out lightning, Which really caught my eye! I think the author wrote this book for teens and really young adults because the characters seem to cuss a lot. I loved this book because of the excitement and comedy and I have and will continue to recommend this book to any of my friends.

The Book of Three (Chronicles of Prydain #1) by Lloyd Alexander

The Book of Three: Book Review RD
“A blinding flash split the air in front of him. Lighting seared his arm and he was thrown violently to the ground.” The Book of Three is an adventurous book with a war lord with an elk skull over his face, chasing an assistant pig keeper. This book is a fantasy with an oracular pig, (this means that this pig can predict the future,) an evil war lord, and couple of sorceresses. Taran is an assistant pig keeper, and Gurgi is like golem ("lord of the rings" crazy creature) and is always searching for his crunchings and munchings. This duo along with three other characters come together to try to find an oracular pig and warn Caer Dathyl before the city is destroyed....... I would recommend this book to anybody from the age of 8 to 15 who likes a good adventure.
